According to Attorney General Tarek William Saab, a prison riot in Socialist Venezuela killed 68, a majority of which weren’t prisoners.

Miami Herald:

Sixty-eight people have died in a prison riot in northern Venezuela, Attorney General Tarek William Saab said late Wednesday.

Initial reports had said that five people had died when inmates at a detention center at the regional police headquarters in Carabobo state took a guard hostage and set fire to mattresses.

However, Saab said in a series of tweets that the dead comprised 66 men and two women, who were visiting the prison overnight.

As we have reported Venezuela continues to spiral into madness thanks to Socialism. The report also mentioned poor prison conditions which may have led to not just the ability for the guard to be taken hostage but also the reason for the riot.
